A plant swap beauty...it is a ghostly blue color- very unusual I think and I love the ruffled petals.
Supreme Sultan...my Walmart Iris.
I have no idea about this one but it is a very small bloom and short in stature. I love the pastel color blend.
I have been coveting the white/purple blends in others' yards...Surprise! I have one too! I love the edging of the purple with the white, it makes it glow.
This year a generous co-worker gave me free reign to get flower starts from her mother-in-law's yard (she's in the nursing home). She must be a lover of iris too..I found 3 nice varieties there including this one. Yay!
The next two are the dearest of all as they came from my mom's house. She had them for years until they had all but stopped blooming. About 4 years ago I laboriously dug them all out, shared with my sister and co-workers then planted the rest. It took 3 years for them to start blooming but they have been faithful since. The pastel lavender has a sweet scent that carries on the wind. Makes me want to stop what I'm doing and say "hi mom!"
Thanks for sharing my "presents" with me!
